First Scientific Meeting of the Pan American Photodynamic Therapy Association – April 6th, 2013

This week, the 1st Scientific Meeting of the PanAmerican Photodynamic Therapy Association (PAPDT) will be held in Boston, Massachusetts on Saturday, April 6, 2013, from 8:30am-5:30pm. For the first time the Annual Scientific Meeting will be held in association with the American Society for Laser Medicine and Surgery (ASLMS) to enhance the basic science and clinical interdisciplinary aspects of photodynamic therapy, bringing together scientists, clinicians and engineers with an interest in both photonics and medicine to share their experiences from bench to bedside.

The main theme of this Scientific Meeting will be to discuss the basic science and clinical advances in cancer, antimicrobial and other photodynamic therapeutic applications with the declared focus of improving the scientist/clinician interface.  The PanAmerican Photodynamic  Therapy Association is soliciting abstracts for oral presentations and posters.  Please submit your abstract using the ASLMS online system for submission.  You will need to select “Photodynamic Therapy” as the presentation category.  Important to note, you must either email Michelle directly at michelle@aslms.org so that she knows the abstract is for the PanAmerican Photodynamic Therapy Association.  Students and young researchers are especially welcome.

The Scientific Program will include the Chairman’s lecture and other invited lectures covering the recent advances in photodynamic therapy.  One half day session will focus on basic science and clinical photodynamic therapy of cancer and the other half day session will focus on basic science and clinical photodynamic therapy of antimicrobial and other applications.  A business meeting of the PanAmerican Photodynamic Therapy Association will be held during the course of the meeting for election of new officers and committee chairman.

Attendees of the PanAmerican Photodynamic Therapy Association will be able to register for the ASLMS Annual Conference at the “member” rate. CME credits will be offered.
